The men's water polo team finished the year ranked 23rd in the nation, and junior Sam Radetsky was named to the Division III All-American Squad, Second Team.

Senior Emily Tryon, a forward and tri-captain for the Slugs women's basketball team, was chosen Athlete of the Week last week by the Santa Cruz County Sentinel sports staff for scoring a personal-best 28 points and pulling down 9 rebounds in the Slugs' game against Holy Names College on January 17. Tryon has been averaging a team-high 17.6 points.
